Best of RCS: Linebackers

The Latest: Alabama and Auburn seems like the leaders to land Wilson, who is also high on Georgia.
The Skinny: Wilson grabbed an interception on his first rep at RCS: Atlanta and kept the momentum up all afternoon. He was clearly the best linebacker at an event loaded with talent. Wilson has a college-ready build and moves his frame around smoothly.
Ben Davis
Gordo, Ala., RCS: Atlanta
The Latest: Alabama and Auburn seem to be the favorites to land Davis, but Florida, LSU and others are alive as well.
The Skinny: Davis is a unique blend of size and speed and may have taken home MVP honors at RCS: Atlanta had it not been for Wilson's massive day. Despite his size, he transitions effortlessly out of his backpedal.
Michael Divinity
Marrero (La.) John Ehret, Houston Speed & Skill
The Latest: Divinity named a top 15 a few weeks ago, and he continues to look at those options. LSU continues to come on strong and Texas A&M is also a team to watch.
The Skinny: Divinity arrived at the Houston Speed & Skill Challenge with his mind set on sending a message. He was on top of his game from the beginning of warm ups until the end of the 7-on-7 competition. He showed fantastic footwork and tremendous range in one-on-ones. He is at ease in pass coverage and used his speed and quickness to stay with smaller, quicker opponents. For his efforts, he took home linebacker MVP and he earned the top spot on the Defensive top performers list.
Jaquan Yulee
Chesapeake (Va.) Indian River, RCS: Richmond
The Latest: Yulee is set to visit Alabama this coming weekend before committing on June 4. His finalists are Alabama, Florida State, Michigan State, North Carolina and Virginia Tech.
The Skinny: Yulee has done a great job of keeping his weight down and getting faster and it showed in Richmond. He was able to run with running backs and tight ends and has the ability to be a solid defender in the middle of the field.
Breon Dixon
Suwanee (Ga.) Peachtree Ridge (2017), RCS: Charlotte
The Latest: Dixon has several offers, with Alabama and Tennessee among his early favorites.
The Skinny: Despite already being on the radar as a rising junior, Dixon surprised many by reeling in linebacker MVP honors in Charlotte. His ability to turn and run with backs in space was impressive and he had the event's coaches singing his praises for his showing during drills.
Tre Lamar
Roswell, Ga., RCS: Charlotte
The Latest: Lamar is narrowing his options this summer, with Alabama, Clemson, Auburn and Florida heavily in the mix.
The Skinny: Lamar has slimmed down during the offseason and his new body allowed him to better keep up with backs and tight ends in a camp setting. Lamar will make his living patrolling the middle of the field in college, but his versatility in Charlotte was impressive.
Jonathan Jones
Orlando (Fla.) Oak Ridge, Orlando Speed & Skill
The Latest: South Carolina, Michigan, Duke, Oklahoma are seen as the biggest threats to land Jones' commitment.
The Skinny: The linebacker MVP of the Orlando Speed & Skill Challenge, Jones impressed with his build but wowed with his fluid movement. He covered a variety of different targets in one-on-one drills and knocked away a ball or two that seemed to be thrown out of his reach.
Bryce Youngquist
Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) Los Osos, RCS: Las Vegas/RCS: Los Angeles
The Latest: Arizona State is one of the favorites, but Oregon, Oklahoma, Tennessee and many others remain involved.
The Skinny: Youngquist never backs down from competition and routinely gets to the front of the line to test himself rep after rep. He runs so smoothly that he tracks down running backs who find an inch and he closes so well once the ball is in the air. The only way to beat Youngquist down the field is to run the perfect route and to throw the perfect pass.
Elysee Mbem-Bosse
Ellenwood (Ga.) Cedar Grove, RCS: Atlanta
The Latest: Alabama, Oregon, Michigan and Notre Dame are among the schools vying for Mbem-Bosse's services.
The Skinny: One of the most physically impressive linebackers in the country, Mbem-Bosse showed that his game is right up there with his physique. He moves very well for a player his size and is now one of the most coveted linebackers in the Southeast.
Deonte Williams
Plano (Tex.) Prestonwood, RCS: Dallas
The Latest: Williams has double digit offers with Baylor, Oklahoma, Texas Tech, and TCU among his options.
The Skinny: Williams is a big linebacker at 6-foot-2, 215 pounds, and he showed some very nice range at RCS: Dallas. He was the most impressive during one-on-one drills and he was very comfortable in coverage. He used his speed to stay with smaller running backs and he also used his size well as he took home linebacker MVP honors.
Devin Gil
Pembroke Pines (Fla.) Flanagan, RCS: Miami
The Latest: Gil is committed to Miami but is expected to take a handful of other visits in the coming months.
The Skinny: The linebacker MVP at RCS: Miami, Gil showed a knack for covering smaller targets downfield. Gil recovers well for a linebacker and can change direction quickly for a prospect with solid size.
Griffin Grady
Dublin (Ohio) Coffman, RCS: Cleveland
The Latest: Grady lists Northwestern and Wisconsin as his favorites heading into the summer.
The Skinny: It was a deep linebacker group at RCS: Cleveland, and by day's end, the 6-foot-3, 206-pound Grady emerged from that talented collection as one of the top performers. An outside linebacker prospect, Grady had no trouble staying with tight ends and running backs down the field and broke up a ton of passes.
Josh Brown
Charlotte (N.C.) Mallard Creek, RCS: Charlotte
The Latest: Brown is committed to Florida State but has taken a lot of visits and plans to visits to Georgia and Florida. He has locked in an official visit to see Florida State take on Miami.
The Skinny: Brown is a tweener linebacker that can do some damage with his hand on the ground. He has the athleticism to play in space, but is dangerous coming off the edge in pass rushing situations.
Jacob Colacion
La Habra, Calif., RCS: Los Angeles
The Latest: The recent offer from Arizona is big for Colacion, who also likes Boise State, Washington State and others.
The Skinny: Colacion has proven through the 7-on-7 circuit he can cover crossing routes and track players to the sideline. Earning the position MVP camp at RCS: Los Angeles, the three-star prospect did an excellent job staying with running backs through their routes and then making a play on the ball.
